Join TCCN Members and Friends for a special full-day training from our partners Mental Health America.
Mental Health First Aid is an 8-hour course that trains you to recognize the signs and symptoms of a person experiencing a mental health challenge, as well as the important of early intervention. Trainees learn how to implement the MHFA Action Plan for individuals at any stage of a mental health challenge, whether the individual is experiencing early symptoms or they require support during a mental health crisis. Trainees also learn how to specifically support individuals with panic attacks, anxiety and depression, non-suicidal self-injury, traumatic events, psychosis, and drug or alcohol withdrawal and overdose.

About Mental Health America
Founded in 1909 by Clifford W. Beers, Mental Health America (MHA) is the nation’s leading community-based nonprofit dedicated to addressing the needs of those living with mental illness and promoting the overall mental health of all. During his stays in public and private institutions, Beers witnessed and was subjected to horrible abuse. From these experiences, Beers set into motion a reform movement that took shape and is known today as Mental Health America.
MHA’s programs and initiatives fulfill its mission of promoting mental health and preventing mental illness through advocacy, education, research and services. MHA’s national office and its 200+ affiliates and associates around the country work every day to protect the rights and dignity of individuals with lived experience and ensure that peers and their voices are integrated into all areas of the organization.
